        Ideal Motel for weary travellers.”

        Plenty of off street secure parking. Pleasant and helpful staff and only a short drive to shops in the city centre

        The staff members was very helpful on check in even providing a small breakfast basket which was ideal as I had a early start to get on the road.They're is plenty of signage to locate the motel from the main road and the nearby Railway Crossing with its regular freight Trains is not noticeable as all the rooms have excellent sound proofing. It even a great location if you are a bit of a train enthusiasts. Highly recommended accommodation option to stay whilst visiting or passing through Port Augusta

        Great Accommodation ”

        Good location, very friendly staff, room was perfect .Very secure parking which I love as I go out bush and have expensive gear up on the roof rack.Not far from a great pub for meals shopping centre just down the road. The only negative was that it's right next to a train line but the last train for the day goes through fairly early in the night around 9.30 ish I think it was so no big deal. If in Port Augusta again this will be the only place I consider.

        Pampas Motel was a lovely spot to stay overnight and it was worth paying a little extra to upgrade. The host was helpful and very pleasant. Being a light sleeper, the trains were not so much of an issue as I knew what to expect. The people in the room next door came in late and made a lot of noise talking loudly and had the TV on until well after 1am. Not good for having a good sleep after a long day driving. I would recommend this accommodation to others.

        Hidden Gem, Better than any Motel”

        This not really a Motel, its way better. A hidden gem, was a pub in the late 1800s, now restored to era decor and is a boutique hotel. Nothing else like it in Pt Augusta. . Absolutely spotlessly clean, awesome host who is so obliging, and goes way above normal service levels.

        Straight-forward and Friendly”

        The Pampas is an old style pub, converted into a motel. It is fine for an over-night stay and well located to access the Pichi Richi Steam railway. An easy stroll to a nearby pub for evening meal, few frills but no complaints. The room was spacious.

        This motel has its own story, the family owned this motel happily shared the story to us.

        A little bit of history at a budget price”

        I stayed with 2 family members overnight on 14th November. We stayed in a motel-like room at the rear of the historic building. I have a cleaning company and I was very impressed at the cleanliness and freshness of our room. Everything you need in a basic but 'got you covered' way. very ample breakfast basket...much enjoyed. Michelle is a great host partnered with Jackson The Dog. If she isn't busy she certainly has a family tale or 2 to tell!!

        Let's be honest, most people wold rather have brilliant first class hospitality and good facilities over great facilities and poor hospitality. Michelle is the most amazing Host who has your every need thought about and delivered on. I'll admit that the room looked like a blast from 1970, but everything worked and the bed was extremely comfortable. Michelle delivered to our room a sensational breakfast hamper. Value for money, hospitality, cleanliness, basic but good facilities, excellent security, gated carparking and even powerpoints to plug your car fridge into if needed. No wonder Trip Advisor had this place rated so highly. Excellent and Memorable. We will be back.
